Not holding my breath or anything, but anyone want to converse about ideas instead of people?  I'm not interested in arguing ad hominem.  It's too easy, and I don't see that it gets anywhere.

If anyone's upset about the gun control thing, I'm sorry you're upset.  Not sorry I posted about it because I didn't post anything that disrespected anyone, but sorry if you feel bad.  My intent was to inform, not upset anyone.

Spellmage, I'm not sure I get your response.  You seem to be numbering my remarks up to a certain point, then it just gets confusing.  And I don't understand your point about the Battle of Hastings and subsequent events or your point about the founding of the Normandy region.  Most Americans know a little something about the American Revolution, but I doubt very many are familiar with the events to which you allude.

I'll concede the point about IQ tests that several people are making.  Ok, they're a good, very general, tendential indicator of intelligence.  But still very sketchy - especially in my experience.  My highest IQ score is 45 points higher than my lowest.  Yeah, I'm just going to anticipate and pre-ignore the remarks about that last sentence...
Yeah, I hate bringing up IQ because its limiting, and you have to take a real IQ test, not one of these online ones lol. I scored a 145 on one of those lmao, I'm bright but not That bright :-) The real tests are Hard.
As far as gun control, I just don't see how anyone can judge a country on one small set of laws, that's all.

We Americans are the most intelligent people on the planet. We know our lefts from ups and we certainly know at least a thing or one.
It's good to be Young.
